Aqueous phase behavior of tetraethylene glycol decanoyl ester (C9COE4) and Ether (C10E4) investigated by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic techniques.
NMR techniques were confirmed as useful tools to characterize aqueous phase behavior of surfactants, providing supplementary information to the classical techniques such as visual observations, polarized optical microscopy (POM), and surface tension measurements. Expand
Self-association of short-chain nonionic amphiphiles in binary and ternary systems: comparison between the cleavable ethylene glycol monobutyrate and its ether counterparts.
The introduction of a carbonyl function into the skeleton of ethyleneglycol-derived solvo-surfactants is a way to access cleavable compounds with presumed enhanced biodegradability and the ability to form structured systems is examined. Expand
High resolution NMR for the direct characterisation of complex polyoxyethylated alcohols (CiEj) mixtures
Abstract High resolution 1 H and 13 C NMR were used to characterise complex mixtures of industrial polyoxyethylated surfactants of the C i E j series. A progressive methodology was applied to analyseExpand
